John Lennon called it “the son of Sgt. Pepper”, and it is interesting to consider what he means in this context. The two albums are as different in approach as you can imagine. Whereas Pepper was meticulously planned and orchestrated, this is chaotic, so I presume what Lennon really meant is that The White Album is a reaction against Pepper- it is as spontaneous, impulsive and sprawling as Pepper was tight and unified. And this album really is an astonishing feat of musical creativity and adventurism. By the time the first side has ended we have swung from the back to the 50s rock of the opener, to the gorgeous pop-psychedelia of Dear Prudence, to the sunny, Nanna-pleasing pop of Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da to the poignant lyricism of While My Guitar Gently Weeps– perhaps Harrison’s best song- and at last to the disturbing and disturbingly under-rated, Happiness Is a Warm Gun.
